Netflix’s prequel TV show, Young Wallander, just finished airing the first season, released in September 2020. The reception for the series was both good and bad. The show is a prequel to the popular Swedish crime-fighting TV and movie series, having the titular detective. It is based on a novel series by the late Henning Mankell, who assented to the show’s making before his demise. His novel series Kurt Wallander has been adapted into various movie productions. This series intends to unfold to the viewers how the great Kurt Wallander was formed, his experiences, challenges, and brilliance while young that formed the man. I believe the show is doing justice to this take. Hopefully, it gets renewed real soon.
